Vintage 1959 Larson Boat, Evinrude Lark Outboard Boat Motor Original Near Mint:
Classic 1959 14 ft. Larson PlaMate Boat, 1959 35 HP Golden Jubilee Evinrude Lark Outboard Motor, and Spartan Trailer
Stored inside all of its' life, is this complete original 1959 Larson PlaMate boat 14 ft, 1959 35 hp Golden Jubilee Evinrude Lark Outboard Boat Motor, controls, and Spartan trailer. This is avery special boat and motor from our personal collection. We used this outfit last week on our vacation in Bemidji, Minnesota. It provided hours of enjoyment as we cruised around the lake in this truly classic boat. I have included some photos of the boat on the water, as well as photos of it on the trailer, ready for the trip back to Chicago. The boat trailered well, with no problems, on the 650 mile trip home. Unfortunately, our storage garage in Minnesota and at home are full, so we must sell one our boats.
Prior to us owning this boat, it was part of the Mikkelson Collection in Willmar, Minnesota. Paul Mikkelsonacquired Larson boats, outboard motors, and boatingmemorabiliaand created one of the finest boating museums in the nation. He paid special tribute to the evolution of Larson's Falls Flyers and was considered to be the premier collector of classic Larson boats.
The boat and motor have been used only in FRESH WATER, has very low hours and has been meticulously maintained. One look at the original paint and emblems on the motor and you will know that this motor was the pride of someone's collection and thus deserving of being a part of The Mikkelson Collection, Inc. It is a truesurvivor.
The boat is in original condition with the exception of some areas on the hull (white part) that theprevious owner polished to blend in scratches/scuffs. The blue top has its' original shine and luster to it. Since the boat has been used, there are some scratches and dings. We had it in the lake, all week, with no leaks whatsoever. A previous owner attached a "mount" for a kicker motor to the back of the boat. This can be removed by the new owner, if desired. Also included is what appears to be the original top and side curtains. We have not assembled the top to confirm fit etc. but it appears to be complete and in excellent original condition. Please take a look at the detailed photos to appreciate the condition of this American Classic. Classic boats like this, in original condition, are getting harder and harder to find. This motor is in excellent condition and operates properly. There have beenno touch ups to the motor since newso there are someminorscratches from use. The boat dashboard and the motor, both contain the original "Golden Jubilee" Emblem, which is frequently broken or missing after 50+ years! The boat was in storage for many years without use however the motor starts and runs very well.
